Crock Pot Overnight Pumpkin Pecan Steel Cut Oatmeal

Since it is fall on the calendar here in Texas, I am 'in' to pumpkin. I saw this and wanted to try it. I adapted the recipe and made it in a 3 qt crockpot. It could easily be doubled or tripled and made in a 6 qt crockpot. I added a bit of milk to the finished oatmeal before eating.
